We are a small rural primary school in the heart of a farming community in a delightful location with views across Morecambe Bay to the Lakeland Hills. We are situated approximately 6km NW of Garstang and 9km S of Lancaster, easily accessible from both directions and we have safe drop-off area for children. We strive to provide an excellent standard of education for our children which is broad and balanced, exciting and innovative and in an environment where each child feels safe, valued and cared for.
A Breakfast and After School Club is run by Cockerham Kids Club in the school hall. Please see the section for Cockerham kids club Home Page for more information.
We are pleased to say that the Ofsted inspection January 2020 judged our school as: Good
Cockerham Parochial is a happy and caring school. Staff provide a warm welcome for pupils and parents at the start of the day. Pupils know that the staff care about them and want them to do well. Parents appreciate this nurturing environment. They say that it helps their children to thrive. Ofsted 2020
Pupils’ personal development is promoted well. Pupils take part in a wide range of sporting clubs. They know that exercise keeps them fit and healthy. Older pupils take on many responsibilities. They run the library and help younger pupils choose a library book. They complete a hygiene certificate so that they can help serve food at lunchtime. Ofsted 2020
Children settle into the Reception class quickly and are eager to learn. Ofsted 2020
Staff are proud to work at Cockerham Parochial. Ofsted 2020
